Gold-tinged leaves glowing on maple trees, flannel-donned students filling Hope’s campus, and cider slushes in the hands of downtown shoppers… all signs that The Big Read Holland Area is right around the corner! Julie Otsuka’s When the Emperor Was Divine is this fall’s star and there are events available for every member of our community to join the conversation.
The Big Read’s happenings range from book discussions and film screenings to Japanese drumming and a writing workshop; you can check them all out on our calendar page! Visit our website to learn more about getting involved (and maybe even check out our awesome t-shirts!)
Hollanders and other nearby friends, we can’t wait to see you at our first event – only 33 more days!
